We’re Here To Help When the World Seems Likes It’s Out To Get You

You devote so much time and energy to your work that it can be devastating if you are fired, disciplined or harassed. If you have been discriminated or retaliated against because of your race, nationality, gender, disability, marital status or age, or because you engaged in protected activity, you may have a claim against your employer.

The experienced attorneys at Atwood Law will fight to vindicate your rights against your employer or government entities that may have violated your civil rights. We also handle trust and estate litigation, commercial litigation and any other kind of civil matter in court, including:

  • Employment litigation, including discrimination, harassment and retaliation under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the Nebraska Fair Employment Practices Act
  • Civil rights litigation under § 1983
  • Wage disputes
  • Whistleblower claims
  • Licensure issues
  • Disputes regarding noncompete agreements
  • Disciplinary and grievance procedures
  • School law matters, including student discipline and special education disputes
  • Will contests and other disputes involving trusts and estates

I cannot thank you enough for the peace of mind you have brought to my family! Both of my parents are extremely grateful for your work. I knew we were in good hands from the first meeting and you have exceeded all my expectations! It may feel straightforward to you, but to us, you have moved mountains. This settlement will allow my parents, particularly my Dad, to enjoy the rest of their lives to the fullest of their abilities. We all agree that we would give every cent back and more for my Dad to walk again, but that is not going to happen...

"...He didn't treat me like I was one of 100 clients. He treated me like I was his only client. He acted professionally but with empathy, dignity and friendliness. It didn't matter if it was something small or large, he was always there for me, be it by phone, fax, email, cellphone or meeting me personally at his office or elsewhere. He never rushed me when I didn't understand something, he'd take as much time as needed to explain things to me, especially when it came time for my deposition and in preparation for trial. He was there for me when I truly needed his help..."

"...My husband and I felt his kindness immediately and were both very impressed with his knowledge of what to expect in a wrongful death case. He pursued our claim in an aggressive manner while at the same time being very protective of our rights and privacy and sheltered us from any unnecessary contact with insurance agents, or any other adverse parties. My husband and I cannot say enough about the kindness, professionalism and legal ability demonstrated by Atwood Law"

"...If it were not for this law firm all I would have received from this injury would have been a loss of income check and a pat on the back, goodbye. Which only would have been a fraction of what I actually received. He was always professional but more importantly he cared about me and my family as people not just a client. He went beyond his role as my lawyer. He even spoke with my bank and explained why I was behind on my car payment. And this saved me getting my car repossessed..."
